Happy Birthday

It is the first day of school here in VA.  It is bittersweet as my daughter is a senior this year and my boys are both in college :( 

Anyway, I thought what better way to cheer myself up than to play along with a couple of challenges from Splitcoaststampers.  This weeks CAS (clean and simple) challenge was to use a stencil, so my background is a polka dot stencil by Donna Downey that I clear embossed with versamark, then used salty ocean, broken china and tumbled glass distress inks and blended them over the top.  They colours are for the colour challenge today which are coastal cabana, tempting turquoise and pacific point.  I feel that the distress colours that I chose are a good substitution to the SU ones mentioned.  The dessert option was to use dots, which was a bonus as I had this awesome mask that was polka dots!!  I die cut a couple of butterflies and embossed the large one with an embossing folder from quickcutz and the smaller one I did some more emboss resist using a French script b/g stamp from SU, then blended on some more distress ink.  The butterfly and sentiment are popped up for a little dimension! 

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday.  I don't know about everyone else, but I am ready for fall!!!
